Government ratifies collective agreements for 155,000 PSAC members

The federal government has ratified the collective agreements for PSAC-UTE members working at Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) and in the Treasury Board PA, TC, SV, and EB bargaining units. 

PSAC will meet with Treasury Board and CRA representatives next week to sign the new collective agreements.

After an expedited ratification vote process, all five agreements were ratified by PSAC members on June 16, 2023.  

Next steps

Once signed, all non-monetary terms of the collective agreement will take effect immediately.

The employer has 180 days from the signing of the contract to implement wage increases, wage adjustments and allowances. If the implementation period goes beyond 180 days and when the outstanding amount owed is greater than $500, the employer will pay a $200 lump sum per member.

PSAC will update members when the agreements are signed. Please contact your regional office to make sure your contact information is up to date.
